The Emergency First Response (EFR) course is one of the most important training you can sign up for. Not only divers need it but everybody should be trained as an Emergency First Responder (EFR). That is because you never know when or where an emergency will arise. It can be at home with your loved ones, at work with your colleagues or while diving on holidays.
The Emergency First Response (EFR) course trains you to provide First Care to patient in life threatening situations. By providing rescue breaths and CPR, you extend the life window of those near you while Emergency Services are on the way.
It also teaches you to help with Secondary Care for emergencies that are not life threatening. You will learn how to perform illness and injury assessments. You will be able also to help with bleeding, fractures and splinters.
To keep your training up to date and refresh your skills regularly, most Emergency First Response training needs to be retaken every 24 months. It is a required course if you are looking at signing up for the PADI Rescue Diver or the PADI Divemaster training.
